    Which forums have you stopped visiting/contributing?

    My chosen field has it's own specialty job posting location, so I've been applying online since the early 2000s. That, however, involves and email with resume and cover letter attached with a brief introduction in the email body. No online HR nonsense.

    Pearl 75th Anniversary

    Oh I know, I was being a smartarse. :D I think the endangered status of the plant is what led to the higher price point. It's still too much money, regardless of reasons.
